Windows 7: [HELP] USB Flashdrive Problem

[HELP] USB Flashdrive Problem

I'm having a problem with this particular USB flashdrive. Whenever it was inserted, USB Disk Security detects it and reports as there's no threat from malwares in the said flashdrive, but it doesn't show up in the 'My Computer' screen. I tried remapping the drive letters of some virtual drives in this PC but it didn't work. The said flashdrive didn't work on 2 PC's now so the USB port of the PC's is definitely out of the problem here. How do we fix this problem? There are important files in it for office work.

The USB Flashdrive is just busted. I'm not sure if it's even fixable.
